Where was this car sold? I have seen one in Ireland, with an Irish number plate. At first I thought it was some screwy Japanese import (they're quite popular here), but then noticed it was left-hand drive. I thought it looked quite similar to the Corolla/Sprinter of the same era, which also confused the hell out of me... --Zilog Jones 23:51, 28 May 2005 (UTC)
I made an important change to this quality automobile:) Whopper 02:44, 2 January 2006 (UTC)
- You did not. There's a difference between making good changes and vandalism. --ApolloBoy 06:11, 2 January 2006 (UTC)
Someone want to fix the edit buttons for the sections that found there way to the bottom of the page in some weard way?
Also, I think a source is needed on the MPG numbers presented here - I drive a 2001 Chevy Prizm and on regular unleaded I would say I get a hair under 30 MPG city. --CoolGuyRH 21:24, 11 January 2007 (UTC)
--This depends on which transmission you have- I also have a 2001 Prizm, it's the 3 speed automatic- we average around 29 MPG, however on long road trips we do get up into the lower 30's. But if you have the 4 speed automatic then you see the 32-37 that is advertised.
--I don't know what you are talking about. I get 30 city and 37 highway on my 2000 Chevy Prizm 3-speed automatic. Which is confirmed by a Scanguage II. Check your alignment, tires, and airfilter. --Texnofobix 17:58, 31 July 2007 (UTC)
--I have a 5 speed manual version - 1999. Basic model with out any power options. It gets 36 in the "city" and 41 on the highway. Sometimes the winter is a little worse. For comparison, my wife has a 2000 Toyota Corolla - 4 speed automatic and loaded with all the options. This gets 32 in the "city" and 37 on the highway. 12:44, 26 June 2008 (EDT)
Several statements in this article that seem to me to stray from NPOV. I just removed the most glaring one ("Basically a perfectly good Toyota product ruined by GM parts."). More work needed?
I have a 2000 prizm it is automatic w/od, I was reading the fuel mileage discussion, and wondered why there is such a large diffrence in fuel mileage. I have checked mine a couple dozen times. I average 41 miles to a gallon, If it drops to 37 or 38, we do a tuneup and it goes back up. I have never separated highway miles from regular. for example on a trip from va to Atlanta, I drove to Atlanta shopped in town drove around several days drove home and the mileage for the entire trip was 41 miles to a gallon. We have newer vehicles and are getting ready to purchase a minivan. However I live 35 miles from town and intend to have my Prizm forever (lol) it has 140,000 miles and has never gave us any trouble. It has truly been a extremely dependable and economical car. My only complaint is that the front seats could have been made more comfortable.
